    Now I know I may be provoking a lot of people here. But I get really annoyed when people refer to sigs and so on as ART. And it's not even the word that bothers me because it's just terminology but sometimes people talk about graphic design and such as actual art. Which annoys me since my father is a painter but not like the hobbyist painter but like, a painter. Who devoted his whole life to it and who pursues it as his ONLY career. And he doesn't do modern ---- either. And he spend about 6-10 hours a day painting, and he truly loves art. Now I myself greatly enjoy graphic design but I wouldn't go so for as to call it anything more than a hobby or in some cases a career. Also I haven't come across a lot of people calling there graphics "art" but I'm just saying in general. Anyways that's about it o.o

    THIS. IS. ARTAAA!

    sorry. obligatory.

    but really. just because your dad works with a difficult medium doesnt invalidate our efforts. art doesnt have to be a career. it can be a hobby too. ask your dad about that one.

    if people pay thousands of dollars for the products of monkeys and finger paint

    I don't see why a sig isn't art.

    is it ----- art? no. Is it art, yes.

    DICTIONARY. COM BETCH

    –noun
    1. the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.

    2. the class of objects subject to aesthetic criteria; works of art collectively, as paintings, sculptures, or drawings: a museum of art; an art collection.
    3. a field, genre, or category of art: Dance is an art.

    tags and LPs are art, people spend long hours working on their "graphic designs" or as most ppl say ART! Ask your dad, his art mabye made with a tangible element, but if you can see it, it is art, everything on the earth was made by God and it is all art, even the things we hate, the most destructive things in the world are art, Hurricanes, tornados, tsunami, they're all the art of God, the creator.
